We begin episode 25 with the Mailbag. In the Mailbag, a man named Colin heard my rant on cell phones and sent us this Huffington Post article “To My 13-Year-Old, An iPhone Contract From Your Mom, With Love” by Janell Burley Hofmann. The author provides 18 awesome and loving rules to her child and his first phone. We introduce the Yonanas dessert maker in SuperCharge. For Stuff To Do, the suggestion is to do an obstacle course with your kids. Allow them to participate in creating it and then time them as well as you to go through it. Dr. Ellen talks about the importance of touch in Light Her Fire and Jason talks about the massage class he took. We move into an energy filled Dad’s Debate with the topic of “Should you help your children with homework”. This is the research study article we mention. We finish the episode with 2 quotes about homework. The first one is “Homework: because 7 hours of School wasn’t enough”. The second one was “”If kids haven’t learned the concepts by the time they leave the classroom…the homework is pointless.”
